Bush Expected to Veto a Hate Crimes Bill

President Bush looks likely to veto a "hate crimes" bill under debate in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday if it is approved by Congress. Conservatives quickly responded by thanking the president for upholding "our nation's constitutional tradition of equal protection under the law."

"The administration favors strong criminal penalties for violent crime, including crime based on personal characteristics, such as race, color, religion or national origin," according to a statement released by the Executive Office of the President.

"However, the administration believes that H.R. 1592 is unnecessary and constitutionally questionable," the release stated. "If H.R. 1592 were presented to the president, his senior advisors would recommend that he veto the bill." The sentence containing the veto reference was underlined in the statement.

So, hate crimes are bad. Unless they're against homosexuals. For fuck's sake. =P

I'll be the first to say I am unfamiliar with this website, and is thus questionable, so we'll see what happens.

But would this really surprise anyone?

Well, maybe the 28% of people that are still giving this monkey a thumbs up.
